"do "downton abbey." what he was doing there is all in "the skinny." it's thursday, september 11th. good morning, everyone, on this thursday, i'm dan kloeffler. >> i'm reena ninan. i was telling dan, i don't know what it is about the september 11th, i feel it a little bit more. it may be the combination of the beheading of the journalists, the president's speech and then sending the kids to school. you feel vulnerable and realize the threat is still very much alive. >> the threat is out there. the face of the threat may have changed. obviously approach and strategy made to change accordingly as the president laid out last night. where we begin this half-hour, thursday morning, strong words from president obama laying out his strategy to ultimately defeat isis terrorists.
2:02 am
>> the president in his most forceful language yet put isis on notice in last night's televised address to the nation. >> i can announce that america will lead a broad coalition to roll back this terrorist threat. our objective is clear. we will degrade and ultimately destroy isil through a comprehensive and sustained counterterrorism strategy. >> it was just over two weeks ago the president said he did not have a strategy yet for dealing with isis in syria. >> but last night mr. obama laid out a comprehensive road map and a challenge to its allies. our coverage begins with abc's karen travers. >> reporter: president obama said the u.s. will not be constrained by borders when it comes to hunting down terrorists. >> i will not hesitate to take action against isil in syria as well as iraq. >> reporter: an overwhelming majority of americans support u.s. air strikes against isis targets in syria. the president said the u.s. will launch a campaign to take out isis wherever they exist. using air strikes and partners on the ground. senior administration officials would not give a timeline for
2:03 am
this action, saying they didn't want to telegraph military strikes. president obama asked congress for the authority and funding to train and equip moderate syrian rebels. something the cia has already been doing in secret. >> we must strengthen the opposition, the best counter weight to extremists like isil. >> reporter: senior officials said saudi arabia agreed to host the training program. if congress signs off. president obama spoke by phone with saudi arabia's king abdullah. the president also announced the u.s. would expand air strikes in iraq beyond the mission of protecting americans and providing humanitarian aid. >> so that we're hitting isil targets as iraqi forces go on the offense. >> reporter: more than 1,000 u.s. troops are already in iraq. the president announced an additional 475 will be deployed there. he insisted they will not be combat troops. they will be there to train and advise iraqi forces. >> we will not get dragged into another ground war in iraq. >> and of course they are now moving on to this new plan to
2:04 am
take on isis, coming as the nation is marking 13 years since the 9/11 attacks. >> it's really interesting, interesting questions exactly about tonight. we have got karen travers live in washington. karen, i guess really the big question tonight, do you think the president was successful in making his case today? >> good morning, reena. president obama was trying to reassure americans that he has a strategy for isis. remember just two weeks ago he actually said the quote "we don't have a strategy right now." so there was a lot of backtracking over the last two weeks. and the american public clearly wants the president to get more aggressive, but last night he said this is going to be a different war than the ones we saw in iraq and afghanistan. not a large scale invasion with significant number of ground troops. the president compared it to the terrorist strikes in yemen and somalia. but, reena, dan, what he described last night is very different from that as well. one thing administration officials are saying, this is not something that is going to be solved overnight. this could potentially be an open-ended fight. >> karen, let me ask you, what about the response from congress?
2:05 am
what is the likelihood then they will be going along providing the funding or the support? >> dan, it looks like the president could have the support and they're going to have to do it quickly. congress could have a vote on this as early as next week. the reason they want to do it so quickly isn't because they want to wrap this. but they want to get out of town, head back to their districts and campaign. in fact, yesterday one republican senator blasted his colleagues for trying to get this done so quickly, not have what he called a proper debate on that. he said, you shouldn't deserve to be in the united states senate. dan, reena, important to note, the one who said that, criticized colleagues not on the ballot in november. karen travers from washington. >> karen, thank you. the new plan to take on isis comes as the nation marks 13 years since 9/11 attacks. president obama will participate

in a moment of silence at the white house before attending a ceremony at the pentagon. here in new york last night the so-called towers of light were turned on briefly. a test ahead of tonight's display. law enforcement across the nation as usual will be on alert. well the nfl says it has hired former fbi director robert muller to lead an investigation into how the league handled evidence in the ray rice domestic violence case. the firestorm over the case exploded even further last night after a new report claiming the nfl had the violent video of rice punching his then-fiancee months ago. here's abc's aaron kurterski. >> reporter: the nfl is still scrambling to get back on offense three days after ray rice's brutal attack on his new wife was bared for all to see. the league sent a memo to teams, saying when the new video evidence became available we acted promptly and imposed a suspension on mr. rice. commissioner roger goodell telling cbs news. >> what we saw in the first videotape was troubling to us in and of itself. but what we saw yesterday was extremely clear, is extremely graphic and was sickening.
2:07 am
and that's why we took the action we took. >> reporter: critics question why goodell needed to see the assault before taking action. documents obtained by abc news, show severity was clear almost immediately after reich knocked his wife out in an atlantic city elevator. police said rice punched his wife, rendering her unconscious. >> the league was never quick enough, decisive enough in the whole situation. and now it is trying to play a game of catch up it can't win. >> reporter: members of congress from both parties, even one of his own players, have called out the commissioner. >> the commissioner should be held accountable for his actions. certainly that's the expectation for players. >> reporter: the national organization for women called for the commissioner goodell to resign. and also, wednesday, espn reported new details of moments after the assault when rice dragged his then fiancee janay out of the elevator. a security staffer told espn, the football star said the woman was intoxicated and he was trying to get her back to her room. the source said when janay regained consciousness, her first words were, "how could you do this to me?

high tree, then shot it. the lion will undergo dna testing to make sure in fact it is the proper lion. well, ready for some good news about the environment? the ozone layer is beginning to recover. a u.n. study calls it a victory for diplomacy and science. because countries were able to work together to phase out a certain chemical. ozone in the stratosphere shields the earth from harmful solar radiation that causes skin cancer. i feel so relieved it wasn't my hairspray, dan. it takes a while to keep this up. >> went with a half can today, but it's effortless, though. >> yeah. another look at to day's weather. a band of storms stretching from southern new mexico up through the ohio valley blanketing the entire northeast. a separate ban of showers extending into the upper midwest. mountain snows in fact up to a

this morning there are new questions about what and when the nfl knew about the brutal video of ray rice striking his then fiancee, the nfl hired fbi director robert muller to lead an independent investigation into how the league handled the evidence in the case. >> the initial incident launched a broader domestic violence problem in the nfl into the spotlight. now women's rights groups are calling for the league commissioner to resign. abc's ryan smith has more. reporter: it was the blow that started everything. and a commissioner playing defense in his first comment since the video of nfl player ray rice striking his then fiancee janay palmer made public monday by tmz, roger goodell admitted on "cbs this morning" the league has until now failed to properly address domestic violence within its ranks. >> absolutely. we are saying. we have a problem.
2:44 am
>> reporter: his problem is only growing. >> i just think that he can't credibly commit to make the deep, the, the thorough going and deep changes that clearly need to be made in the nfl. >> reporter: with the national organization for women calling for his resignation. >> we need someone independent to go in, do a top to bottom investigation of the nfl and get to the root of the nfl violence against women problem. >> reporter: it all michigan michigan began when the first video emerged showing rice dragging unconscious palmer out of an elevator in atlantic city. >> when we met with ray rice and his representatives it was ambiguous about what actually happened. >> reporter: goodell says he never saw the full video from inside the elevator until monday. so he had no idea what really happened. but a law enforcement force tells the associated press they sent the nfl a copy of the brutal ray rice beating video back in april. the nfl responded, we are not
2:45 am
aware of anyone in our office who possessed or saw the video before it was made public on monday. we will look into it. but the question lingers, why did goodell require video proof of the beating in the first place? police documents obtained by abc news show the severity of the attack that was clear almost immediately after the assault. police said rice punched his wife, rendering her unconscious. >> they didn't need the tape. that's the part that they have yet to own up to. for it to take a video and to take us being stuck with these kind of lasting horrible images i think is just -- just says a lot about how much the nfl missed the mark with this. >> reporter: this comes at a time when the nfl is trying to increase its female fan base even running tv ads with nfl gear for women. >> you did it week after week. day after day. >> reporter: one sported rice's number 27. this week, nike pulled the plug on rice's championship.
2:46 am
ravens fans have been turning in jerseys bearing his name. and while his ban from football is indefinite, goodell doesn't rule out a return. >> he would have to make sure that we are fully confident that he is addressing this issue clearly. >> reporter: following rice forever will always be that video from the elevator. >> that video is going to be very hard for a lot of people to forget. and i think it is going to take a lot for nfl owners and nfl personnel to get over that to give ray rice another opportunity. >> reporter: for "nightline," ryan smith in new york. >> the current nfl commissioner roger goodell said he will fully cooperate. he will allow full access to robert muller, to any of the nfl personnel all the files in this investigation which incidentally will also be overseen by the owners of the new york giants and the steelers. so there are a lot of people involved in this. apparently the report will then be made fully transparent to the public. >> speaking of the steelers they play the ravens tonight.
2:47 am
is this one of the cases where the cover-up ends up being as equally as bad as the crime here? >> i think a valid question. when you constantly go back and see the video. the graphic nature of the video that is the genesis for why we are even having this discussion right now. and unfortunately, yes, a lot is being raised about who knew what when. get back to the heart of it. a woman was punched. it's sickening to see that. >> it certainly is. coming up, a new development in last week's deadly plane crash in ohio killing four college students. >> relatives of one of the victims are considering filing a wrongful death lawsuit. what was behind the crash.

3:31 am
good morning, everyone, on this thursday, i'm dan kloeffler. >> i'm reena ninan. i was telling dan, i don't know what it is about this september 11th, but i feel it a little bit more. it may be the combination of the beheading of the journalists, the president's speech and then sending the kids to school. you feel vulnerable and realize the threat is still very much alive. >> the threat is out there. the face of the threat may have changed. obviously approach and strategy made to change accordingly as the president laid out last night. which is where we begin this half hour on this thursday morning, strong words from president obama laying out his strategy to ultimately defeat isis terrorists. >> the president in his most forceful language yet put isis on notice in last night's televised address to the nation. >> i can announce that america will lead a broad coalition to
3:32 am
roll back this terrorist threat. our objective is clear. we will degrade and ultimately destroy isil through a comprehensive and sustained counterterrorism strategy. >> it was just over two weeks ago the president said he did not have a strategy yet for dealing with isis in syria. >> but last night mr. obama laid out a comprehensive road map and a challenge to its allies. our coverage begins with abc's karen travers. >> reporter: president obama said the u.s. will not be constrained by borders when it comes to hunting down terrorists. >> i will not hesitate to take action against isil in syria as well as iraq. >> reporter: an overwhelming majority of americans support u.s. air strikes against isis targets in syria. the president said the u.s. will launch a campaign to take out isis wherever they exist. using air strikes and partners on the ground. senior administration officials would not give a timeline for this action, saying they didn't want to telegraph military strikes. president obama asked congress
3:33 am
for the authority and funding to train and equip moderate syrian rebels. something the cia has already been doing in secret. >> we must strengthen the opposition, the best counter weight to extremists like isil. >> reporter: senior officials said saudi arabia agreed to host the training program. if congress signs off. president obama spoke by phone with saudi arabia's king abdullah. the president also announced the u.s. would expand air strikes in iraq beyond the mission of protecting americans and providing humanitarian aid. >> so that we're hitting isil targets as iraqi forces go on the offense. >> reporter: more than 1,000 u.s. troops are already in iraq. the president announced an additional 475 will be deployed there. he insisted they will not be combat troops. they will be there to train and advise iraqi forces. >> we will not get dragged into another ground war in iraq. >> and of course they are now moving on to this new plan to take on isis, coming as the nation is marking 13 years since
3:34 am
the 9/11 attacks. >> it's really interesting, interesting questions exactly about tonight. we have got karen travers live in washington. karen, i guess really the big question tonight, do you think the president was successful in making his case today? >> good morning, reena. president obama was trying to reassure americans that he has a strategy for isis. remember just two weeks ago he actually said the quote "we don't have a strategy right now." so there was a lot of backtracking over the last two weeks. and the american public clearly wants the president to get more aggressive, but last night he said this is going to be a different war than the ones we saw in iraq and afghanistan. not a large scale invasion with significant number of ground troops. the president compared it to the terrorist strikes in yemen and somalia. but, reena, dan, what he described last night is very different from that as well. one thing administration officials are saying, this is not something that is going to be solved overnight.
3:35 am
this could potentially be an open-ended fight. >> karen, let me ask you, what about the response from congress? what is the likelihood then they will be going along providing the funding or the support? >> dan, it looks like the president could have the support and they're going to have to do it quickly. congress could have a vote on this as early as next week. the reason they want to do it so quickly isn't because they want to wrap this. but they want to get out of town, head back to their districts and campaign. in fact, yesterday one republican senator blasted his colleagues for trying to get this done so quickly, not have what he called a proper debate on that. he said, you shouldn't deserve to be in the united states senate. dan, reena, important to note, the one who said that, criticized colleagues not on the ballot in november. karen travers from washington. >> karen, thank you. the new plan to take on isis comes as the nation marks 13 years since 9/11 attacks. president obama will participate in a moment of silence at the white house before attending a ceremony at the pentagon. here in new york last night the so-called towers of light were turned on briefly. a test ahead of tonight's display.

law enforcement across the nation as usual will be on alert. well the nfl says it has hired former fbi director robert muller to lead an investigation into how the league handled evidence in the ray rice domestic violence case. the firestorm over the case exploded even further last night after a new report claiming the nfl had the violent video of rice punching his then-fiancee months ago. here's abc's aaron kurterski. >> reporter: the nfl is still scrambling to get back on offense three days after ray rice's brutal attack on his new wife was bared for all to see. the league sent a memo to teams, saying when the new video evidence became available we acted promptly and imposed a suspension on mr. rice. commissioner roger goodell telling cbs news -- >> what we saw in the first videotape was troubling to us in and of itself. but what we saw yesterday was extremely clear, is extremely graphic and was sickening. and that's why we took the action we took. >> reporter: critics question why goodell needed to see the
3:37 am
assault before taking action. documents obtained by abc news, show severity was clear almost immediately after rice knocked his wife out in an atlantic city elevator seven months ago. police said rice punched his wife, quote, rendering her unconscious. >> the league was never quick enough, decisive enough in the whole situation. and now it is trying to play a game of catch up it can't win. >> reporter: members of congress from both parties, even one of his own players, have called out the commissioner. >> the commissioner should be held accountable for his actions. certainly that's the expectation for players. >> reporter: the national organization for women called for the commissioner goodell to resign. and also, wednesday, espn reported new details of moments after the assault when rice dragged his then fiancee janay out of the elevator. a security staffer told espn, the football star said the woman was intoxicated and he was trying to get her back to her room. the source said when janay regained consciousness, her first words were, "how could you do this to me? i'm the mother of your kid?"
